Weekly McAlester News-Capital Roundup

Not much to report (ha ha) this week. Had to work July 4 but turned it into a three-day weekend (which is why I didn’t update last week).

At some point soon I’m going to have to cutting back my daily writing a bit to concentrate on the 2013 football preview, but since we killed the Monday paper, keeping under 40 hours a week hasn’t been nearly as difficult. So who knows, maybe I’ll be able to continue producing 10 stories a week and get the mag done on time.

I wrote about 55 percent of the content for last year’s mag. My goal this time is to start the process early enough to write at-least two-thirds of all the articles (basically, football and cheerleading for all seven schools, plus all the McAlester stuff).

Here’s what I wrote the last two weeks.
